Relating to crafting, I’m a fan of Trash To Treasure kind of initiatives and this crochet challenge is not any exception. I got here up with the concept a couple of months in the past to make use of Plarn as a substitute of white yarn … however when you have no idea the right way to make Plarn, you possibly can nonetheless crochet up this snowman fridge magnet through the use of 4-Ply white yarn.
You should utilize felt, ribbons, black beads, wiggle eyes, coloured craft foam or no matter you’ve got available to trim them. You’ll be able to glue a magnet disk onto the again to make them into vacation fridge magnets or omit the magnet and add a dangling string to show them into Christmas Tree Ornaments.
Each will take only some minutes to crochet after which about an hour to connect on the entire trims. Fast and Simple kind of craft!
Here’s what you’ll need :
1 plastic buying bag, became plarn
1 spherical magnet disk
scraps of black, pink and orange felt (for hat, hat ribbon, eyes and carrot nostril)
all-purpose craft glue
dimension F or G crochet hook
Be aware: If utilizing yarn as your base, you should use a glue gun so as to add the trims. If utilizing Plarn, sizzling glue can soften plastic baggage!
To Make The Snowman Head :
Together with your plarn or yarn, chain 5, slant sew into first chain to kind a hoop. Chain 1, then make 10 single crochets within the ring, slant sew to first SC that you just made, chain 1, then make 2 single crochets in every single crochet, slant sew in first single crochet, fasten off and weave in your ends. (observe: I made mine with plarn which is far bulkier than common yarn).
To Make The Trims :
From black felt, lower a prime hat form and glue it onto the highest of your snowman's head. I trimmed mine with a scrap of pink felt on one and on the opposite with a scrap of ribbon. Lower a small triangle from orange felt for his nostril and a couple of small circles from black felt for his eyes. Glue these onto his head. You’ll be able to resolve if you wish to add a mouth or not … both means he appears cute! End up by gluing a magnet disc on the again and allow them to dry for two hours.
